BENEFITING: ANIMAL ADVOCATES ALLIANCE
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
I've been training for the LA Marathon since the end of August, and the other day I thought, "Well sheesh, I'm running 26 miles ANYWAY, might as well raise some money for a good cause!" I decided to look for a fairly local, small organization that might have more difficulty raising money than something nationally known. I love animals, so I decided to run for the Animal Advocates Alliance in Los Angeles. Not only do they rescue, rehabilitate and place abused and neglected animals, they promote spay and neuter, offer free dog training classes, and prosecute jerks who abuse animals.
Here's their website: http://animaladvocatesalliance.org/
One of their partners is Rescue Ink, which you may have seen on the National Geographic channel. http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/series/rescue-ink-unleashed
I already managed to raise $500 and I have one more week, so I think I'll shoot for $800! Anything you'd be willing to donate would be greatly appreciated! Even $10 adds up after awhile...
